LAS VEGAS, Nev. (FOX5) - Las Vegas is getting ready for Formula 1 to take over the Strip a whole year in advance.

On Tuesday, Clark County officials unveiled plans and renderings for FI’s preview party happening next month on the Strip.

As part of the festivities, officials note that Las Vegas Boulevard will be closed between Spring Mountain and Harmon from the north side. In addition, Harmon will be fully closed at Paris and Harrah’s.

The road closures are expected to start at 4:30 p.m. and will likely run until 7:30 p.m.

During the demo run, F1 officials said drivers will start and finish at Caesars Palace. F1 says the drivers will turn onto Caesars Boulevard towards the Paris, where they will then turn into the driveway. From there, drivers will go around the Arc de Triomphe, come back and turn back onto Las Vegas Boulevard.

Featuring real Formula 1 drivers, the idea for the fan party is to get an understanding of what F1 is like by building a mock track with demo runs.
